Wax Owls Share New Single ‘Carry Me’

Los Angeles indie-folk trio Wax Owls have just shared their brand new single Carry Me, a lovely indie pop /folk song co-written with Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra. 
I am loving the song's anthemic atmosphere and how its infectious chorus sounds perfect to sing along to. Gerry Hirschfeld's distinctive vocals beautifully convey the emotion of their storytelling and soar effortlessly over the upbeat indie-folk production. I am particularly fond of the intricate guitar riffs and punchy percussion that beautifully back Gerry's lush vocals and dreamy harmonies. The whole atmosphere of the song is quite warm, packed with emotion and an overall feel-good atmosphere. Carry Me sounds like a perfect anthem for this last summer's day and for big life changes. Have a listen to this gem below!



Vocalist Gerry Hirschfeld says on the track, 
I have been a fan of BTE since I was a kid, so I was very excited to work with Kevin. I spent the morning of our song-writing session scrolling through old voice memos of songs I had on my phone because I didn’t want to show up to the session empty handed. I stumbled across a voice memo I had made in 2018 when I had just finished law school and was living in Chicago. It had the first few lines and melody for what became the chorus; 'If I go to California, make believe I want ya.' Kevin liked the hook so we built the song off of that. I made the voice memo when I was gearing up to move back to LA to start my career as a lawyer. I wanted to move back to LA but not to be a lawyer… even before I started the job, I knew I was just pretending that it was a good next step. Lyrically, Carry Me is about just that: being on the precipice of a big life change but also knowing that the change was not happening for the right reasons. After a few years working as an attorney, I quit my job to pursue my passion. Wax Owls is now gearing up for our first tour at the end of September where we will be playing Pilgrimage Music Festival and sharing the bill with Better Than Ezra. It really came full circle.
